SAP (SAP +2.9%) closes higher after announcing its core Business Suite ERP, CRM, and HR apps will now be supported by its popular Hana in-memory database. This significantly expands the addressable market for Hana, whose ability to enable real-time analytics and reporting for other SAP apps has already fueled blistering growth. Bernstein has predicted Hana support will also be extended to non-SAP apps. Oracle (ORCL) is trying to counter Hana via its costly Exadata X3 system.
